Stu got these glow-in-the-dark buckyballs earlier in the year, and surprisingly they weren't denied entry to Australia.

Here's some photos I took in 2012 (!) that still haven't been blogged - bucky shapes!  Made when I was stockpiling bucky balls before they were finally banned for sale in Australia.

Saturday saw us having our annual hanami party with Nat and Andrew.  

Cherry blossom

There were lots of nibbles, teriyaki chicken wings, honey soy drumsticks, potato salad and regular salad.

After lunch we played with Buckyballs, then had a game of Alhambra which I won, and a game of flux which Andrew won.

Save Bucky Balls!!

So most Australian states have interim bans in place for the sale of Buckyballs.  Not sure what that means for imports.  Just in case, I did another stocking up trip.  This time direct from Get Buckyballs.  And saved a fortune.  Buying 216 from them was only slightly more expensive than buying 125 from Australian Geographic.  I got myself another 216 originals and 216 blue-green ones.  And got Stu a couple of packs of cubes.  And a set of "Bucky Bigs" to have at work.  And because I got in during a promotion to "save our balls" I got a tshirt, case and sticker for free as well.

I think I should have bought myself another couple of packs of 216 though...
